Geneva Lake Shore Path

There are 21 miles of shoreline surrounding Geneva Lake. You'll find incredible estates on expansive lawns that are meticulously maintained.

Tourists can see these mansions up close from a 2-foot wide footpath that was originally used by the Potawatomi and is open to the public and accessible from any public park on the lake. The path, at times, is smooth and well maintained and at other times, is rough patches of grass and tree roots or even unstable rocks. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring water and snacks.

To make the walk easier to navigate, pick up a copy of Walk, Talk and Gawk. It's a map and guide that breaks the path into 7 separate walks ranging from 2 to 3.5 miles. For each walk, points of interest, distance, path conditions, public access, and parking information are provided. Walk, Talk and Gawk is available at the Cornerstone Shoppe and a few hotels in Lake Geneva.

The Shore path on Geneva lake is a fun way to spend your day. It shows you the many cool houses of the residents of the lake. You can also visit the "Expect a Miracle" house (separate review). I've only walked portions of the path but walking through the whole thing is quite an accomplishment.

Fun and long

The Lake Geneva Shore Path is a path that wraps around lake Geneva. When you walk or bike on it you can see all the gigantic houses up close. It is just beautiful. If you need exercise here's the place. I haven't walked the whole thing yet, but I hear it takes all day. It's a lot of fun to do in the summer so check it out.
